    What's happening before overheating? It could be your water pump, thermostat, cooling fans, radiator, etc. You'll have to explain the problem a bit more before we can begin to help you diagnose it.

Hi,
Engine overheating? Check:
1. Coolant level at cold
2. Coolant leak check for loss of, during "not hot" running condition. (water pump, hoses)
If above is ok, I would replace the thermostat. It's inexpensive and easy enough to do.

Hope this helps... Good luck!
